In today’s episode, Jeff tries something new. He wants you to meet his friend Dr. Edward Sri.
Dr. Sri is a theologian, speaker, author of several bestselling books, and also hosts a podcast. He just authored a brand new book entitled “No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion.” In addition to the book, he went to Israel to film videos that allow you to meditate on Christ’s passion in a much deeper way.
Jeff and Dr. Sri also answer tough questions such as:
If God is going to wipe away our sin, couldn't there have been another way besides crucifixion?
Was Jesus abandoned by the Father when he called out “My God, my God. Why have you forsaken me?”
Did Jesus have second thoughts about dying for our sins when he asked God to “let this cup pass from me?”
Snippet from the Show:
“You will never see God’s love more beautifully shine than in these accounts of Christ’s passion.”

Have you ever been sitting at home bored and restless, feeling like you are going nowhere? Do you pull out your phone, turn on the television, or reach for a drink to numb this restlessness? Your home is supposed to be a place of reflection, intimacy, and growth. But in these moments, it is all too easy to become paralyzed and cease to walk in your vocation. We all have been given 24 hours in a day and as a disciple, you are a steward of that time. Today, Jeff reflects on two Bible passages: Jesus healing a paralyzed man (Luke 5:24) and the faith of the Centurion (Matthew 8:5-13). Through these two passages, Jeff provides 3 things you can do to break free, rise up, and walk.
Snippet from the Show:
We all experience these kinds of paralysis in our life, but it points to something deeper and that is that we cannot get to heaven on our own. We need Jesus, we are paralyzed in terms of our eternal destiny and we desperately need him to help us.

Just because God says something in his Word, doesn’t mean it is going to manifest itself in your life. The soil of our own hearts has a lot to do with whether the Word of God will take hold. During this Advent season, Jeff takes you through the parable of the sower to help prepare your heart for the coming of the Lord, who is the Word made flesh.
